Teaching Ethics in Evidence


We address in the following pages the subject of incorporating legal ethics issues into an evidence course. Our treatment is divided among three related issues. First, is it desirable for an evidence teacher to address ethical issues? Second, at what points in the course is it appropriate to do so? Finally, how should evidence teachers go about including ethics in teaching evidence? In connection with this third question, we focus on the ethical dimensions of witness preparation and confidentiality to illustrate how ethics can become an integral part of teaching evidence.
